TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. The 120-day agreement, which helped take some of the sting out of rising global food prices, was renewed last November. That extension expires on Saturday. The U.N. said it “notes” Russia’s announcement.

VERBATIM: The delegation also said it would accept only a 60-day extension as the Kremlin holds out for changes to how the arrangement is working. The United Nations and Turkey brokered a deal between the two warring countries in July. It allows Ukraine to ship food and fertilizer from three Black Sea ports.
